K-12 and Higher Education

Our history of professional services for primary, secondary and higher education facilities incorporates analysis and design services for new school facilities, as well as renovations and expansions for existing school facilities.  Projects have required design of:

  • HVAC systems
  • central utilities
  • interior and exterior lighting
  • security
  • fire alarm and sprinkler systems
  • plumbing
  • ventilation studies
  • energy conservation improvements


The primary focus of all projects in educational facilities is to ensure the safety and welfare of the students and faculty while simultaneously meeting the goals of the construction program and completing the work on time and within the established budget. We have an excellent reputation for achieving these goals.

Beverley Farms Elementary School, Montgomery County Public Schools,

Potomac, MD

This project entailed the design of a 94,000 SF replacement school. EBL provided the design of the mechanical (heating, cooling, ventilation, exhaust, and energy recovery systems), electrical (power, lighting, and telecommunications systems), plumbing (sanitary, stormwater, domestic hot, cold, and recirculation systems, natural gas, and radon exhaust systems), and fire protection (sprinkler and fire alarm).

Each classroom was provided with its own dedicated geothermal heat pump unit to allow individual room control. Administrative areas were also served by more generalized geothermal heat pumps to provide control of office suites or pods of common areas. A geothermal water loop was provided to connect the various heat pumps to a geothermal field located beneath adjacent Montgomery County Parks and Recreation athletic fields. Automatic temperature controls were designed as direct digital type (DDC) and connected to Montgomery County Public School’s central control center. Due to the electric loads, a new 480 volt electric service was provided. This project is certified LEED Gold.
